Loved the lake, house could use some improvements

  • 5 of 5

Bathroom upstairs is way to small, Could use some kind of small dresser in that room or the Loft area. Some kitchen utensils could be replaced/upgraded. Outside in front of the house is unuseable. Chairs are in bad shape as need to be restained or painted and container for fires is rusted and broken in places. The one by the dock could use improvements to. Didn't use that one either.

overall we had a wonderful time. The dock and boating area is great. The lake is just beautiful! A couple of the rafts too use would not hold air and need some kind of pump to inflate them. We will return to Smith Mountain Lake next fall hopefully, but will not rent this house again.

Nice quite, wooded lot.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the house worked great for the 5 of us. The lot was much more wooded than expected. Although we still had a view of the late from the deck, a little tree work and ground clearing would make the view and experience much better.

Area needs updates

  • 3 of 5

The cove was beautiful. The neighborhood was great. The house was clean. There were a few items that can be approved upon. When advertising the ad should say steep incline to water with MANY steps to the water. The dock had several nails that needed to be fixed and one side was uneven and leaning. The lot needed to be cleaned in the rear of the house. It was overgrown and wild. A snake greeted us from this area within a hour of arrival. There were no lights under the overhang in the back of the house even though there was a swing and furniture in this area. The main living area had NO TV. The third bedroom is in an unfinished basement...creepy area. Will not be returning to this home.

More than we expected

  • 5 of 5

Hello, I must say we were very impressed with Redwood Cove. The pictures that are posted don't do the place justice ,it's so much more than we expected. We really appreciated all the extras, the personal touches that make it more like a home than a rental. I being a cook , was surprised how equipped the kitchen was, even a coffee grinder... We have a busy schedule but will be recommending your place to friends as a place to stay.

We now feel like we have our own place at the lake.

Thanks so much.

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay in July at Redwood Cove could not have gone any better. The house itself was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The best part about the house itself? Everything actually worked! We've rented vacation properties in many areas of the country over the years and it isn't always necessarily so. Obviously the owners of Redwood Cove take great pride in ownership of their lakefront vacation home.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities this property has to offer; the 2 decks at the house, fire pits, barbeque grill, plenty of outdoor seating, DVD & music entertainment center, deck and dock at the lake (with power/lights) and the boat house with lift - which accomodated our boat very nicely. The subdivision (Mountain View Shores) even has a private boat ramp only a couple of blocks from the house to launch your boat. If you don't have a boat, there are also several boat rental businesses on the lake near the house where you can rent everything from ski boats, fishing boats, pontoon boats, personal watercraft, kayaks and canoes to tubes and ski and fishing equipment.

Even if you don't have or rent a boat for your stay at Redwood Cove, the deck and dock are excellent for fishing and swimming in the large cove. The water is very clean and the fish are plentiful.

In our opinion, Redwood Cove is an excellent vacation spot for families with children, but also for just about anyone of any age who would like to enjoy the mountain setting and everything Smith Mountain Lake and the surrounding communities have to offer. Our 2 adult sons from Florida joined us for our week at the lake and they both had a great time and want to go back - and they are pretty hard to please! We will certainly be renting Redwood Cove again in the future. We've found our perfect waterfront setting for rest, relaxation and lots of water based activities we enjoy.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Redwood Cove was a perfect getaway for my family. The house was beautiful and we felt at home and can't wait to get back there next year. This was our first family vacation to Smith Mountain and we plan to go back every year.
